Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Cardigan Highlanders Volunteer Trail Crew returned to Winslow Trail to add some rock steps to a gully eroding deep soil. We were able to quarry two good=sized rocks of about 300 pounds which we set as the lowest two steps in a staircase. The nearby slope was picked over in 1987 (Trailwrights)and again in 2010 and 2016 (us). We ended up setting six more steps of small rocks well dug in, some of them needing two rocks. Five crew, six hours. Then on Saturday we met in Warner to drive to Rollins Trail. By 1030 we were at the big mudhole 0.4 miles up from the trailhead with 4 10=pound bars, two pick-mattocks, and two shovels. Three of us quarried rock while the fourth carved out a ditch beside the trail to catch water from a bog. That lowered the water by three inches, and after lunch we set seven of the rocks we found. Needing more pavers we resorted to using smaller rocks leaning on each other. Results: a 10-yard ditch, eleven new rock pavers, and the boards formerly used to cross the mud are stored out of site on a ledge. Four crew, six hours, four hours on site.
